    I'm no expert on these, but why did this sell for so much?

    GOLDEN GUN - BONHAMS

    Is it purely because it is signed by Christopher Lee?

    Seems alot for a replica.

    Exactly what i was thinking! Wonder if a signed Factory Entertainment one would sell well at auction.

    The guy could have bought 2 SD's for $5000 each, flown to england, payed Mr Lee $1000 per signature and he'd have 2 for around the same price. There really are some smart people out there.

    This reminds me of the sale of a NON functioning Microma Blade Runner watch for $3000.00US a few months back.

    Yes I was being VERY,VERY genrerous with my prices. Even at my idiotic numbers he would have been ahead. Not sure it would be that easy to find 8 people ready to sell theie SD's. I'm betting it was some guy who had no clue what he was bidding on and it was a spur of the moment thing. Then he got home , looked it up and threw up.

    IMHO: If it's really used in a film, ok it's a prop or set piece memorabilia. BUT, it's a BIG jump for fan or manufactures of replicas/collectibles to be sold as anything more than that. To do that is unethical and dishonest. Prices of items should reflect that different discrepancy.
    Replicas are not props and should clearly be sold as such. And not because of signatures added to them or who owned them.
    Anything else is anarchy of the market place.
    Just a thought, Were's the line then?
    Buyer BEWARE but verify with trust! And that comes from someone who has been a buyer and seller of quality film & TV items.
